Maureen's Pecan Turtle Cookies

1/2 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 cups flour. Combine butter and sugar and add flour beat together and press into a 9" x 13" pan.

Sprinkle with 1 cup chopped pecans.

Boil 2/3 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 4 - 5 minutes. Pour over pecans. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 18 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with milk chocolate chips (enough to cover top). After they start to melt swirl with knife. Cool and cut into squares.

This fabulous recipe came from a former manager, Maureen Bailey, who passed away in 2009 and is dedicated in her memory. She was a fantastic cook and baker. I wish I had more of her recipes to share. This one was a 1st place prize winner in a bake off contest that she entered. Everyone that sampled this cookie always wanted the recipe, including me!
